On April 29, 2021, about 70 national and international researchers in the field of accounting and taxation came together for a virtual conference, accepting the invitation of TRR 266 Accounting for Transparency. This is a trans-regional Collaborative Research Center funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), in which a team of more than 80 dedicated researchers examines how accounting and taxation affect firm and regulatory transparency and how regulation and transparency impact our economy and society.
The two organizers, Caren Sureth-Sloane (University of Paderborn) and Martin Jacob (WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management), put together a diverse and interesting program from the papers submitted by their research groups.
One paper from each of the 6 research areas in the area of taxation was presented in detail and discussed by a selected discussant. In addition, there was an opportunity for each research group to present one of their recent early stage papers. They were rewarded with highly valuable feedback and comments from the participants via the chat.
